I had friends send me pics directly from their usb device and when i got them i could not see them until I notice that the extension was not .jpg but.jpg.jpg, for some reason they were change when put on the usb device.
So verify the extension of the pictures and make sure they are either.jpg or .bmp ect and not a double of the same extension.
If you cannot see the extension of your pics you have to go in Explorer / Tools / Folder Options and choose the TAB View and unclick the option HIDE EXTENSION OF KNOWN FILE TYPE (something like that).
Not a garantee but worth a try.

If you copy your pictures from your USB back to your computer can you read them

You could try thier free demo to see if it can recover/repair your images
To recover/repair the images you would have to purchase the full version
You could "google". There might be a free utility somewhere.
I wonder if any forum user has tried any image repair software & would post comments

Do you always put your USB devide on the same USB port? If yes try another USB port (if you have one available).
You can also try in case of a conflict to change the default drive letter that windows assigned to it (from drive F: to drive G:) you will be able to do that from the Disk Management menu (in vista I do not how to get there)(in XP you right click on MY computer and choose Manage).
You can also try the Windows error checking utility to see if it can fix your files. Right click on your USB device from My computer menu and choose Properties then Tools then Error Checking make sure to have clicked on Automatically fix file system errors. It should not take long if your USB device is still in good working condition.
As last rersort to maybe rescuing your USB Device is to reformat it but then you would loose everything that is on it at the moment.

Roght click on the image and choose properties then change the extension from .JPEG to .JPG after your image should read (ex: image01.jpg instead of image01.jpeg)
It will proberbly not help you but it is worth the try.
I know your usb device is the last of your worries all that matters are your child pictures, they only grow up once and you do not want to loose those precious souvenirs.
